What we do Programmes Experts in Schools Legal Experts in Schools Legal Experts in School It partners law firms, in-house legal teams and barrister chambers with local schools to increase young people’s understanding of the law. Over six, one-hour sessions occur with legal professionals volunteering in the classroom to facilitate debate and discussion among a small group of 5/6 students aged 14-17. The volunteers use engaging and interactive resources, created by education experts at Young Citizens, to examine some of the most topical areas of the law, such as human rights and the laws surrounding social media. Last year, 96% of the young people who benefitted from the Legal Experts in Schools experience stated they had a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities.
